§ Mr. Lambie
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will hold a public inquiry into the reason for the delay in the completion of its north Ayrshire district general hospital and the increasing cost involved; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. John MacKay
As the hon. Member will be aware, Ayrshire and Arran health board recently asked for an inquiry into the delays in completion of this hospital. My right hon. Friend is still considering that request.
